Biologics are a newer class of therapies that have great possibilities for treating orthopedic injuries.  We do not like to use the term “Stem Cell” because that term has been used mostly to imply that an injection anywhere would lead to regeneration of tissue.  These therapies are considered “off label” and are not currently approved by the FDA.

Bone Marrow Aspirate

Bone marrow aspirate is usually taken from the pelvic bones in the iliac crest.  We have utilized it to help with accelerated healing with rotator cuff tears and for cartilage repair. Studies have shown that in shoulder rotator cuffs, there is a lower retear rate in this group of patients when compared to those that have not had it.  “Stem Cell “ clinics have locally used it to inject into knees but it has not been shown in our literature to have any significant advantage over other modalities that are much cheaper to utilize.

Amniotic Cell Treatments

Amniotic cells come from from placenta tissue and have shown a great deal of promise.  In a double blind randomized study, amniotic cell treatment is an effective treatment for patients with knee arthritis.  Also, it has shown promise with healing tendon injuries.  

Adipose Cell Treatment for Cartilage Repair

Fat cells, or adipose cells are abundant in all age groups and have to be harvested in a liposuction type of situation.  Some early reports have shown that this may have promise for the repair of  focal cartilage defects and may help with knee arthritis symptoms.
